2019 Nissan Sentra Vs. 2019 Kia Forte

White 2019 Kia Forte and blue 2019 Nissan Sentra, separated by a diagonal line and a "VS" logo.

Among compact cars, the 2019 Nissan Sentra has been consistently standing out. With its spacious interior, generous cargo room, renewed infotainment, and buttery smooth ride, it’s a hard vehicle to argue with. For 2019, the Sentra is bringing along a larger standard touchscreen, along with the pleasant possibility of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

The 2019 Kia Forte is stepping into the ring to take on the 2019 Nissan Sentra. Admittedly, the 2019 Forte has a lot of admirable features of its own. Which vehicle is going to emerge victorious?

The 2019 Nissan Sentra and 2019 Kia Forte had a tough battle, with plenty of blood, tears and oil being shed. But a few traits of the 2019 Sentra help it stand up a little taller once the smoke clears.

Superior Max Horsepower

Though its price starts higher, the 2019 Nissan Sentra is helped out by its two engine options, which helps it reach to a significantly higher maximum horsepower. The 2019 Kia Forte only offers one engine throughout all trims, so even as prices climb up the trim ladder, the horsepower stays base-level.

Generous Cargo Volume

Both vehicles have been praised for their excessively large trunks. For all intents and purposes, the same room is offered in both, with the 2019 Forte just scraping out a win with an extra 0.2 cubic feet. The ability to fold down the rear seats in the 2019 Nissan Sentra is helpful for transporting larger items and accessing more room.

Interior Features and Comfort

The interior of the 2019 Nissan Sentra stands out for its comfortable seating, two spacious rows, and well-built, quality cabin. Interior features of the 2019 Nissan Sentra include available leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. We’re also suckers for the standard rearview camera, a final touch which perfectly rounds out the whole 2019 Sentra interior experience.
